FBI Lawlessness Alleged by Police The burning of cars and assaults on radical leftists were efforts to disrupt antiwar activity, these sources said. The Times has received a report of two car burnings in the New York area, but other sources could not confirm these particular acts. One source said, however, that the technique of burning or vandalizing a car was "known to a lot of people." The cars were set afire with "Molotov cocktails" made from glass bottles filled with gasoline. This was done in such a manner as to appear to have been an ittack by another extremist group. Cars were also disabled to strand suspects dur- ng a surveillance, these sources said. Agents, the sources said, sometimes 'roughed up" radical antiwar figures to righten them or to disrupt a demonstra- ion or protest. Earlier, FBI sources had old the Times that there was at least one :idnaping of a radical for the same rea- on. One source said the victim of a beating fas never seriously hurt because agents id not want to create a situation that night be traced to the bureau. The victim, tiis source said, would not have known hat he had been attacked by FBI agents. · THESE ACTIVITIES were never offi- ially sanctioned by the bureau the ourcf.-s said, again adding that they be- Delegates Among 22 delegates who could be con:acted before departing for New York, :here was not one who would say he would lot vote for Carter on the first ballot, although some still have reservations. "I'm not one to jump on a bandwagon ind I suppose I'm about the only one not :ommitted,'' said Charleston lawyer Paul I. Kaufman, "but it looks like Carter pret- y well has it wrapped up." Dr. Stephen C. Bird, a Parkersburg den- ist and a member of the legislature, still :onsiders himself uncommitted except to J. S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd (who has re- eased his delegates) and Dr. Bird wants o ask Carter some questions for his own atisfaction. He hopes to do so tonight vhen Carter holds a reception at Pier 88. Dr. Bird wants to know Carter's stand n gun control (which Bird opposes and hinks there are already too many restric- ions), he wants clarification on use of oal, particularly Western coal, in dealing rith the energy crisis, and he wants to now Carter's stand on Sen. Byrd as Sente majority leader. D. P. "Sheriff" Given of Webster prings, a former legislator, says "I'm not razy about Carter, but he's going to get it D I'll vote for him." Given explains that e is a World War II veteran who was a risoner of war, "so I'm not for amnesty r Vietnam draft dodgers," a modifica- on of which Carter favors. Mr. Shirley Love of Oak Hill said he asn't of a mind to go for Carter "but it BW looks like there's no choice. I had }ped to vote for Sen. Byrd on the first jllot, then go for Sen. Humphrey, but it )w looks like I'm going for peanuts (a iference to Carter as a Georgia peanut irmer). But I like the way he did it, though I still have some reservations in at I don't think he's open enough." * OTHER WEST VIRGINIANS, however, e enthusiastic about Carter. "Yes sir," exclaimed State Sen. William Dates Jr. of Romney, when asked if he )uld vote for Carter on the first ballot. "I ink he's the real hope for the Democrat- party--the man who can get the Demo- ats together." And Democratic State Chairman J. C. lion of Hinton, who also is clerk of the rte Senate, says "I don't really find any position to Carter in West Virginia," lile Robert J. Burke of Wheeling de- ires himself "100 per cent for Carter." to it goes, with every indication that len the roll of the states is called ;dnesday night, West Virginia will cast 5 votes for that Great Statesman from orgia, the man to lead America trium- jntly into the third century--Jimmy rter!" lieved field supervisors knew of the activities. Another widespread practice, these sources said, was to use credentials from the New York Police Department and other state and federal agencies to establish "pretext identities" that would permit agents to make entries or get information without being connected with the FBI. One source said he often posed as a sanitation inspector to enter and search premises without a warrant. These sources said the main use of burglaries in 1972-1973 was to try to locate fugitives of the Weatherman organization. One source who took part in burglaries said they were aimed at the houses or offices of persons who might be harboring the militants Bernadine Dohrn, Kathy Boudin, Cathy Wilkerson and Mark Rudd. The agents, he said, would gather extensive background on the habits and activities of persons whose houses were to be burglarized. This was partly to help agents avoid being surprised while in a house and partly so they could recognize unusual items in the house that might lead to a fugitive. He said, for instance, that if they had established that the owner of a house did not drink, and found during a burglary a matchbook from a bar, they would stake out the bar to watch for the fugitive. Agents, he said, also dusted for fingerprints and took samples of dirt in bathtubs as well as swatches of clothing, if they thought that such items might establish- that a fugitive had beed in the house or indicate where in the country he might be hiding. Federal government sources said that in the present investigation of the burglaries the Justice Department might review FBI laboratory reports to see if they pinpointed any burglaries. One source said there was no pattern on whether agents carried their bureau identification or a gun during burglaries. He said that it was his practice to make an entry without his identity card, but to carry a small-caliber nonregulation pistol in the event he unexpectedly encountered a dog. He said, however, that he would not have shot a person if he had been surprised. Other agents did not carry guns, he said, because they were concerned about laws that carried stiff penalties if a burglar was armed. This source said he had never heard of an agent having been arrested or shot while making an illegal entry, but that occasionally agents who had been sur- ·prised had to knock down or fight someone in order to get away. Restaurateur "Taylor is accused of breaking intu the store on the fifth of July, and stealing an undetermined amount of cigarettes," said Sgt. Ed Leonard of the Charleston Police Department's criminal investigation division. "He broke in through the front door, and went out the back," Leonard alleged, "then sold the cigarettes in the neighborhood of the restaurant." "This lady (Mrs. Hamon) has really been having a lot of trouble," the detective sergeant continued, "and we're really working hard to clear up the robberies and break-ins. We've got five investigators working on her case, in addition to myself." A native of Jackson County, Mrs. Hamon and her late husband operated a grocery store on the site of the restaurant since the mid 1930s. They converted the store into a restaurant in 1966. "I guess they think I'm easy prey," she said after the most recent break-in. Although she is disturbed over the recent crime wave that has struck her restaurant, Mrs. Hamon indicated that she is not a quitter. "I love to work and I love people," she stated. "They mean a lot to me, and I don't plan to give it up." Leonard said he anticipated that arrests would be made "within the next couple of days" to clear up the remaining robberies and thefts that have plagued the elderly restaurateur. Carter flew in from Plains, Ga., while workmen completed the conversion of Madison Square Garden into a convention hall. They hammered in the final nails, then stripped the brown paper off the blue carpets that cover the aisles between bright red delegate seats, and tidied up for opening night. Rep. Morris K. Udall of Arizona was in town, playing out the last act of his defeated campaign. Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. of California was due Monday, and said he probably would have his name entered when the delegate roll is called Wednesday night to choose the nominee. Ellen McCormack, who lives in suburban Long Island, maintained her symbolic, antiabortion candidacy. But the delegates were Carter's. Along the city sidewalks, Carter workers passed out leaflets, urging out a crowd for his arrival rally at the midtown Americana Hotel. UDALL TOLD a news conference that he expects to have his name presented to the convention as a presidential candidate, but may withdraw it before the roll call of the states that will make Carter the nominee. "... We are here to help Jimmy Carter celebrate his victory and to do what we can this week to put this party on the track toward unity and toward victory in November," Udall said. About 350 marchers rallied on 34th Street in a demonstration organized by the National Organization for Women. 75% of State Children's Teeth Crooked, Study Says WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS-Approximately 75 per cent of West Virginia children have misaligned teeth, and in 37 per cent of the cases, the misalignment is severe enough to be considered handicapping, a Washington, D.C., orthodontist said Saturday at a meeting of the West Virginia Orthodontic Society here. Dr. James P. Kerrigan was using figures from the U.S. Public Health Service. He said the study was conducted on a sample of 7,400 children 6 to 11 years old throughout the nation. Princeton Man, 35, Arrested in Shooting PRINCETON-Ira T. Webb, 35, of Princeton was arrested Saturday and charged with the malicious wounding of Brady White, 74, also of Princeton. White, who is listed in satisfactory condition at Princeton Community Hospital, was shot in the abdomen at his home Thursday, state police said. Webb is lodged in the Mercer County jail. Police said he will be arraigned Monday. Fund Raising Scheduled For Hurricane Firemen HURRICANE-A fair to raise funds for the Hurricane Fire Department will be held Friday and Saturday. The event will begin with a parade at 5:30 p.m. Friday. Other activities will include square dancing, races, greased pole climbing, puppet shows and various other games. "You've given us peanuts, now give us equal rights," one of their placards read. Rep. Bella Abzug, D-N.Y., told the women's rally she will meet with Carter today to discuss the role of women in his campaign and in the government.. While it was a no-contest convention, the lack of competition didn't show at Carter headquarters. More than 600 aides and volunteers were at work there - as though there were some question about the outcome. They painted placards, answered telephones, typed lists, checked lists and milled. Campaign manager Hamilton Jordan appointed 21 convention floor managers, but it appeared their major job would be to ward off the unexpected and promote the unity theme. That clearly was the guiding goal in their selection, since the list included such names as Sen. Birch Bayh, a defeated rival; Frank Mankiewicz, who managed Sen. George McGovern's campaign in 1972; and Theodore F. Sorenson, a top aide to the late John F. Kennedy. r- CARTER'S well-publicized search for a vice-presidential running mate was in itself a unity move. He saw to it that almost everybody's favorite was interviewed as a prospect, but kept his own counsel on the choice he will have to announce by Thursday. Sen. Henry M. Jackson of Washington, another presidential loser, had his appointment with Carter Saturday night. The former Georgia governor also is expected to meet with Rep. Peter W. Rodino of New Jersey, probably today, and with Sen. Frank Church of Idaho and Sen. Adlai E., Stevenson III of Illinois. He conferred in Plains with Sen. John Glenn, of Ohio, Sen. Walter F. Mondale of Minnesota and Sen. Edmund S. Muskie of Maine. The Democrats will choose their vice- presidential nominee Thursday night, listen to Carter's acceptance speech, and embark on their campaign for the White House -- leaving it to the Republicans to do the fighting. In a reversal of party habits, that's just what they were doing, with President Ford and Ronald Reagan locked in close competition for the GOP nomination. WEBSTER SPRINGS-A 51-year-old Webster County man was shot to death at his home Friday night after an apparent domestic quarrel. A spokesman for the state police detachment in Webster Springs said Clyde Edward Keffer of Camden-on-Gauley was shot with a .410 gauge shotgun. Police arrested his wife, Agnes, 55, and charged her with murder. Mrs. Keffer was released Saturday after posting $5,000 bond. Police said she was Democrats Name Dinner Chairman Thomas A. Winner, a coal company official from Beekley, has been appointed chairman of the annual Democratic Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner. Winner, an unsuccessful candidate for secretary of state in 1972, was active in the May primary election of Democratic gubernatorial candidate John D. Rockefeller IV. The annual J25-per-person fund raiser will be held Aug. 14 at the Charleston Civic Center. Carbide Promotion Homer W. Stollings of St. Albans has been promoted to master laboratory technician at Union Carbide's Agricultural Products Division.
